Even more Spring/Summer 2014 gorgeousness!
It’s been a busy few weeks at Nordic House HQ – we’ve been having a wonderful time shooting the remainder of our fabulous new products for Spring Summer 2014, as well as putting together our second catalogue. We will be sending it out to our lovely customers this week. If you haven’t already signed up to our catalogue mailing list, you can do so here.
Here’s a sneak peek of the cover! I absolutely love it – don’t you just want to sit on that bench right now?!
I am so proud of the catalogue – it’s been such a joy to work on, and I really think we’ve come up with something new and fresh to delight you all with our new seasons’ products. You might notice we’ve also changed our strapline to ‘relaxed Scandi style for your home’ and we think this perfectly sums up the Nordic House ethos!
It’s been fantastic to welcome in the warmer weather with our new collections, and we’ve grouped them into looks to help customers easily recreate a specific feel at home. Modern Rustic, New Vintage, Industrial Zinc, Rich Copper and Natural Texture are our key themes for SS14, and all of these looks are laid-back and relaxed, combining the best of Scandi living to create a stylish aesthetic that will be the envy of your friends.
We’ve branched out a little with our new products this year – you’ll find a touch more colour, as well as some completely new pieces, such as our exciting new range of Swedish china. I’m SO excited to be bringing this range to the UK – the textured pieces are the perfect mix of aesthetics and practicality as they have a wonderful ‘distressed’ finish but are also dishwasher and microwave-friendly. The only trouble you might have is choosing between the blue and the white…
Nordic Pitcher in Pale Blue
Wouldn’t this jug look simply beautiful on your console table, filled with spring blooms?
Take a look at some more pieces in our china collection. The ceramic teaspoons are so charming and a real favourite of mine…
Nordic Plates in White
Nordic Egg Cups in White
Small Nordic Bowls in Pale Blue
Nordic Beaker & Teaspoons in White
Along with the new china, we’ve brought back many, many more wonderful items from our visits to Scandinavia. Here are some more of our newest pieces, for your delectation…
Scandi Wooden Trays
The rustic, lime-washed finish of our wooden tray – which comes in two sizes – is particularly redolent of Scandinavian country style. Each one looks fabulous piled with fruit or as a candle tray; and their natural finish is the perfect foil for collections of found objects.
Light Blue Striped Table Linens
Stripes are a quintessentially Scandinavian fabric, so this table linen is a great way to conjure up that clean look, indoors or out. These placemats and napkins are 100% cotton, and there’s a matching table runner available too.
We discovered this striking design in Sweden and were instantly captivated by its clean lines and minimal adornment – and by the fact that it radiates Scandi style. Made from white metal, and available in two sizes, this lantern looks at its best with a simple white pillar candle inside; surround it with moss for a flash of velvety colour.
This gorgeous three-legged stool nicely combines sections of clean, white paint with bare, rustic wood. All in all, it’s a supremely handy piece to use as extra seating, or as an understated occasional table. The top section of each leg and the underside of the seat have a white satin finish, while the rest is left in its beautiful blonde state.
Give your pillar candlesticks a bohemian twist by adorning them with our dear little candle bracelets. Their chilled-out mix of leather and beads will add a little bit of shimmer to your mantelpiece or table setting. In a choice of two colourways, they are perfect for adorning any candlestick up to 8cm wide.
White House Candles
Home is where the heart is, so light a host of these sweet little house-shaped candles and feel the love! The wick looks like a chimney on top of each pure white house, and there’s the choice of two sizes so that you can light up your life with some fabulous displays.
Aged Grey Zinc Planters
These covetable zinc planters are a little bit industrial and a little bit vintage – and they look divine when overflowing with herbs or flowers. Each pot has a corrugated finish and a dear little punched zinc label. Choose from two sizes, then mix and match with our Copper and Green versions for a stunning display in your kitchen, conservatory or garden.
Blue & White Striped Rug
Our bright and breezy striped 100% cotton rugs will add cheerful colour all around the house, from the bathroom and bedroom to the hallway and hearth. Nautical blue and white is a classic combination that recreates the style of a laid-back Scandi beach cabin.
Rilled Glass Vase
A must-have vase that is on everyone’s wishlist because it’s the perfect shape and size for effortlessly relaxed floral arrangements. This vase is made from strikingly thick rilled glass and looks stunning when brimming over with even the simplest of blooms as the finishing touch to a Scandi-style room.
As always, these are just a few of my picks from our huge new range of lovely products! There are plenty more on offer over at the Nordic House shop – so do take a look at the store now, and let me know what you think of our new goodies, either here or on our Facebook or Twitter pages.
I hope you love the new pieces as much as I do!
